The Rebel and Public Order

Niemeyer, Gerhart
June 1976
National Review;6/25/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 23, p683
This article consults the book "Crime and Punishment," by Fyodor Dostoevsky in an effort to look for a possible explanation for the decision of Ulrike Meinhof, a former leader of the notorious Baader-Meinhof gang in West Germany, to hang herself in her jail cell in 1976. A short summary of the book is offered. Specifically, the author considers whether Meinhof's action only shows her acceptance to submit herself to the public order in the U.S. Two other U.S. revolutionaries who submitted to the U.S. public order, Elridge Cleaver and Timothy Leary, are noted.
